9 St. Marks Crescent, Regents Park. N.W.

August 10th. 1866

Dear Westwood

It will be a very great convenience to me, if you can let me have the £10 for the Coleoptera you had for the University Museum in December last, as I have a heavy "Call" to pay this month. Hoping you & Mrs Westwood are quite well[,]

Believe me Yours very truly Alfred R. Wallace [signature]

J.O. Westwood Esq.
